Recently, on a flight from Sydney to Melbourne in the A320, I noticed just how crazy the throttle can get. Not too sure if this happens in real life lol. I saved the replay and you can watch it here. It’s almost like it’s trying to do a majestic dance…
Is this an issue with the A320? Or is it just a funny glitch? Either way I am not complaining/
Adding on what has been said: The A/P in IF is very sensitive (especially regarding speed) and is dealing very intensely with high winds or turbulence (at least on the A320 family). If it gets too much I would consider going manual speed (which you would do IRL as well in severe turbulence as far as I am aware).
For example when setting a new speed the autopilot should set the power considering limiting acceleration or deceleration.
Example : flying at 210 kts I set 250 kts the power raises a bit but never reaches 100% — my dream
Well, the limitiere number of votes helps to prioritise what the community really wishes and not just what they all would like to see implemented (which would probably around 50% of all feature requests in my case).
Exact same thing happened to me. It’s due to the winds aloft down. The airport which you are departing from has high gusts, which aren’t usually at higher altitudes, and due to the winds aloft being down, the gusts stay with you the whole flight (or until another METAR is picked up). And since you are being battered with inconsistent winds varying from 25-35 kts, your autopilot needs to adjust to your set speed, which is being increased and decreased due to the gusts.
